Blue Bowl (Len Castle)

Blue Bowl (Len Castle)

Len Castle, grand master of New Zealand ceramics, died 29 September, aged 86. He started out as a science teacher but then turned his attention to pottery, doing it full-time since 1963. He developed a deep understanding of the capabilities of clay and of glazes, no doubt helped by his scientific background.

On Saturday and Sunday the annual Ron Sang exhibition was held, and much to my delight there were some Len Castle pieces, this is one of my favorites.
